"In just seven days...I can make you a Maaaannnnn!"
According to Tibetian doctrines, a Tulpa is an entity created by act of the imagination. According to the prevailing theories, Tulpas are created by act of intense concentration and visualization, much like an artificial elemental. I first heard the term Tulpa in the 90's as part of an episode of the X-files (
At a low point in my life, I decided to create a Tulpa because I was very lonely and hoped to "create" a companion for myself. I began the process of creating my Tulpa by choosing the correct astrological correspondences that best pertain to my goal. To that end I chose to create my Tulpa on a Friday (for love and attraction), during a New Moon (beginnings) which was in Taurus (the astrological sign which had the personality attributes I desired in my Tulpa), in the hour of Venus (which corresponds to Friday, and which also rules the sign of Taurus).
In a cast circle I formulated the image I wanted my Tulpa to assume. For this I used a picture of a man from a magazine and strongly visualized this man before me. Once I was happy with the mental image for my Tulpa, I then gave him a name and a history as follows:
Daniel Owens, was born on
I read my description several times while visualizing Daniel, interacting with him, having conversations, etc. Before going to bed each night I cast a circle, read my description, and concentrated on visualizing Daniel, while holding the picture in my hands. To make Daniel seem even more real, I erected his natal chart and kept both the chart and delineation with the photograph I chose to represent him. I did not choose his birth time without great thought, and luckily I had very good results that would indicate a great deal of compatibility. For example, his rising sign is Virgo, which is also my Sun Sign; we both had Uranus in Scorpio; my ruling sign of Mercury is in his Sun Sign of Taurus; his Venus is in Gemini, which is also ruled by Mercury.
During the day I kept these papers on my altar with a large lodestone on top of them, which I fed with magnetic sand each day. I allowed Daniel to occupy my every waking thought. I thought about him while driving to work, while taking a bath, while shaving, while brushing my teeth, I thought about him while washing dishes, while cooking dinner With my every act I thought about him and imagined him there in the room interacting with me, having conversation, at one point I even set a place for him at the table and imagined we were having dinner together.
After about a month, something strange happened. I started to "see" him, but it was always very quick. For example, I would see a shadowy figure in my peripheral vision walk past my bedroom door, or at another time, I was watching television in my living room and "saw" him out of the corner of my eye watching me through the window in the front door. Honestly, it started to scare me just a little, but I also found it very exciting! Then one night in bed I woke up from a deep sleep feeling heaviness on top of me. I opened my eyes and in the darkness of the room I saw Daniel on top of me-- he was trying to turn me over. In the confusion I pushed him off of me and he disappeared. Now this really scared me.
I had read that the longer a Tulpa is allowed to exists the more independent it becomes and there was no way of telling what may occur if he was allowed to fully manifest. I ceased thinking about him and slowly began seeing him less and less until I never saw him again.
If you attempt these methods, I warn you to be extremely careful!
